Ready for Quiz #18?

Oh no, let’s go!


Quiz Rules/Format
(feel free to skip to the quiz if you know the rules already)

Your Task: Name the mystery Artist, ideally with as few clues as possible.

Correctly guess the artist on the first clue? 500 points.

After scrolling down to the second clue? 400 points.

Still don’t know after the fifth clue? 0 points, but a crisp high-five for participating.

I’ll use google translate to put the correct answer at the bottom in Arabic (if you read Arabic, that’s fantastic, but no cheating by reading ahead!) and you can translate it back to the language of your choice to confirm your answer.

In the comments, please enter your POINTS earned (not the artist name) and I’ll keep track of the running totals in a spreadsheet.

In addition to eternal bragging rights, the winner at the end of the year may even get something as prestigious as a digital certificate.

Here goes!

  1. I hate that I got all 500 points, why do I retain this.

    • Haha – I felt the same when I was in a jeopardy contest at school a few years ago and the answer was about Tom Cruise’s love life – I was happy to get the team the points, but disappointed I knew the answer!

    500. You have no idea how much I’ve listened to this band. They provided the soundtrack to a few drunken nights.

  3. … argh!

  4. 500 for me… and I’ll be surprised if most don’t get 500 this week!

  5. 500 for me too

  6. 400. Surprised I got so much as I’m not a fan at all.

  7. 500! The first clue was a cornerstone of my first year at the Record Store.

  8. 500. I’m with the Dude on this one though.

  9. 500 🤓

  10. 500. Entering from Siem Reap this week.

  11. 500. Saw the reunion tour…amazing!!!

  12. wow I got 500! Hell has frozen over!

  13. 200 for me.

  14. 200 for me… which I think is pretty outstanding given the circumstances!

  15. Dude, I just bought that first-clue CD, like, a month ago. 500. 🙂

  16. 200. I was just talking unfavourably (and unpopularly) about this band this week. Maybe your upcoming posts will affect how I feel about them! They’re too much loved here!

    • You won’t find an overly gushing review here – it won’t be scathing, but it’s a group I haven’t fully warmed up to either!

  17. Ha! 500. I guessed wildly at the first clue and still didn’t know for sure until I got to the end. Can I get bonus points for smugness?

  18. 500. One of my all-time favorite groups. 🙂

  19. 500 here too. Man, the superannuation tour for that album was popular.

  20. 500 points, back on track!

  21. 500 for the week.

  22. 200! Thanks to Seinfeld 🙂
